  • $14M awarded in lawsuit linking birth-control pill to stroke

    CHICAGO (AP) — A jury has awarded $14 million to a suburban Chicago woman who said in a lawsuit that she suffered a debilitating stroke after taking the birth control drug Yasmin.

    Lawyers for Mariola Zapalski say the stroke occurred 13 days after she began taking the drug, paralyzing her left side and causing permanent brain injury.

    Friday's verdict came after a two-week trial in Cook County Circuit Court.

    Defendant Dr. Zbigniew Aniol declined to comment Saturday.

    A $2.5 million settlement in the same matter was reached a month ago with the hospital, Resurrection Medical Center. Drug maker Bayer has also faced lawsuits from women...

  • Fiat Chrysler to build three Jeep models in China

    ROME (AP) — Fiat and Chrysler have announced that they will build three new Jeep models in China for the local market -- which will be the biggest for Jeeps outside the United States.

    The automakers announced an agreement Saturday to expand the joint venture with China's Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. Production is expected to begin in 2015 in Guangzhou.

    Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the deal represents the next phase in the "expansion on a global scale of the Jeep brand."

    In a statement, Fiat Chrysler said Jeep sold more than 731,000 vehicles in 2013 and last month set a record with...

  • Big names among prospective buyers for NFL's Buffalo Bills

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is prepared to make a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills. Donald Trump's on board, too.

    Don't discount the family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. And include New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi's name for added spice.

    It's not every day — or every year — an NFL franchise goes on the market as the Bills are, following owner Ralph Wilson's death last month.

    Wilson's wishes to have the team sold rather than passed on to his family raise the possibility of the Bills relocating from the city that's been home for...

  • GM in new recall controversy involving Saturn Ion steering system

    DETROIT (AP) — Government documents released Saturday show that General Motors waited years to recall nearly 335,000 Saturn Ions for power steering failures, despite getting thousands of consumer complaints.

    GM also received more than 30,000 warranty repair claims. 

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also did not seek a recall of the compact car from the 2004 through 2007 model years, even though it opened an investigation more than two years ago and found 12 crashes and two injuries caused by the problem.

    This issue is the latest setback for the American automaker, which is already embroiled in a massive recall that affects...

  • Delay won't quell 2014 wrangling over Keystone XL pipeline

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats sweating this year's elections may be hoping that the Obama administration's latest delay to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline takes a politically fraught issue off the table for the midterms.

    Fat chance.

    The State Department is indefinitely extending the government's review of the contentious oil pipeline and citing ongoing litigation over its route across Nebraska. The project has taken on a life of its own as climate change activists battle with energy advocates from both parties.

    Republicans are jumping at the chance to paint Democrats as powerless to rein in their own party's president. Keystone opponents are split,...
